If you’ve read my About Me page then you’ve seen part of this story already. Our family vacationed in the Southern Outer Banks to visit my best friend from college, and while we were exploring near Morehead City one afternoon, we saw this turtle walking next to discarded plastic. We took images of the turtle and the trash and shared them with Litterati (if you’re not familiar with Litterati, read my article on the organization). The turtle went back to the water, and we picked up the trash, of course. But what a moment in litter clean up and beach going that was!
I hope if you ever see something similar, you are inspired to clean up the trash and reduce plastic waste. Thanks for reading!
